It gives me great pleasure to intorduce you to the Pediatrics Department of SIUH.
Staten Island University Hospital which has earned its place among the
leading hospitals in the northeast is a member of the Northwell Health
System. Our state designated Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit has
11 neonatal ICU beds and nearly 3,000 births per year. Both our inpatient
and outpatient departments includes board certified physicians in all
the subspecialties. During their PICU rotations, residents will be rotating
through our affiliated hospital, Steven and Alexandra Cohen's Children Hospital.
We are also a major academic affiliate of the Hofstra Northwell School
of Medicine and State University of New York Health Science Center at
Brooklyn's (SUNY-HSCB) College of Medicine. Students from both places
and several other medical schools come here for an enriching teaching
experience. Our comprehensive didactic curriculum for the residents is
one that not only incorporates formal lectures and conferences but also
interactive bedside teaching.
We are committed to providing excellence in patient care, education, and
research. At the same time, we strive to ensure a collegial and supportive
environment in which residents thrive.
I invite you to visit and experience for yourself the outstanding opportunities
and programs offered here and to join us as we embark on this exciting
